    We have made it to the Elite Eight of the poll! I give you Round Four, Kup vs Soundwave. Up to this point we have had a series of blowouts. I suspect this matchup will be more competitive!

    Soundwave superior; Kup inferior.

    ...I just had a sense of deja vu...

    Soundwave. He needs a music player alt mode that isn't obsolete. And no, ML Soundwave doesn't count.

    This is so unfair. Soundwave probably already has tabs in Masterpiece or that Hall of Fame thingie. I wish Kup would have been paired with someone else, because I'll be damned if I don't admit that I want a Kup figure very badly.

    If Soundwave was redone as a microcassette recorder like in the pic from the previous poll (Soundwave vs Chromedome), then I would vote Soundwave. As it is, I really want a Kup with TM.

    I voted Kup. I know Soundwave will win, but personally I'd rather see an updated Kup. Botcon Kup doesn't count because that's a young Kup. The only way I'd want to see a soundwave is if they made him so that Universe Ravage would fit in his chest and if they also did updated Rumble/Frenzy, Laserbeak/Buzzsaw, and Ratbat.

    EDIT: SWEET!! Kup has taken the lead!!!

    I...I want Soundwave in classics form, but...crankybot needs love too (and that Botcon release doesn't count).

    This may be close...

    Gotta go with Kup on this one. I'll keep saying it, Music Label Soundwave is a perfect Classics iteration of the character. A Classics Kup is much needed.

    It's going to be a close one to decide who gets to get thrashed by Jazz in the next round.

    I hope it's Soundwave

    I'm surprised it's so close! Soundwave all the way for me.

    Kup. Because he is Kup. And there's ten billion Soundwave toys already.

    While I prefer Soundwave as a character (and he is certainly the more iconic of the two), if we're talking Classics toys I have to go Kup. MP3 Soundwave already makes a pretty serviceable Classics fill-in, and at this point with USB Ravage, FP Frenzy/Rumble, Universe Ratbat and Overkill, etc. there is even a decent selection of Casseticons (albeit as free-standing figures, not quite capturing the spirit or appeal of their original forms).

    So, while it would be great to have an updated Soundwave with honest-to-god minion-storing ability..... that collection gap doesn't seem as glaring as Kup to me.

    (I'm actually sort of surprised I feel this way. Soundwave is one of my all-time favorite characters and toys, and is a far more integral part of the TF universe. Whereas Kup is one of the worst-named characters in the franchise, is colored a ridiculous teal, and suffers from the inherent conceptual flaw of being an ELDERLY robot who turns into a FUTURISTIC vehicle.... argh! I think I'm just driven by the niggling urge to finish up the '86 movie cast because it is so CLOSE to completion.... come on, just Kup, Arcee, Wreck Gar and Gnaw, let's just get it wrapped up and over with!)
